Happy Halloween!

Wanted to wish everyone a safe and Happy Halloween.  It is raining here in East Texas, so I don't think there will be many children out this year.   That never stopped us though from having a party inside with the kids.  I have so many wonderful memories of past Halloween parties at our house.  We always had a bonfire and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.  Then, Mr. "N" took all of us kids (young & old) for a hay ride with his tractor.  Of course, you had to be on your guard for ghouls & goblins jumping out occasionally.

Sharing a few more pics of Fall and Halloween decor with you.

Update on new puppy:

I have been very busy with our new puppy "Casper".  I will be posting some photos of him soon.  He is now 3 1/2 months old and soooo like a toddler.  Wants to put everything in his mouth and play all the time - Whew!  Older brother "Munchie" has finally accepted his little brother and they play a lot.  Take care.

'Til Then,

Many Blessings,

Fall From The Past

Welcome!  I'm so glad you stopped by.  I have been out of pocket for a little while with my back, but starting to feel better. :)  I am presently working on a little redesign on my website updating it somewhat...may take a while..learning as I go.  There is always something to learn, right?

Today, I wanted to revisit some of my Fall photos from last year that I did not have an opportunity to share.   It still does not seem like Fall here in East Texas. :(  But, can't complain too much, we are getting needed rain.  God is good!

Well, here we go...hope you see something to inspire you!  If you do, I would love to hear from you.  Your comments always make me smile. :) :)

This was our very simple, Thanksgiving table last year.  Just used what I had on hand.  Lots of gold, orange and white.  Beautiful ambiance when all the candles were lit.   I did have more plates, bowls, coffee mugs to put out, but we were not using them, so everyone said simple would be better.  (I like a complete place setting on the table, don't you)? 

Side Table Vignette

Added these small faux pumpkins for a little more color.

Fall entryway centerpiece.  A small faux hay block from "Michael's" was nestled into my
black iron tray stand.  Then I just tucked in a small, Fall swag in the front with a couple of
cute, little, scary ghosts hiding throughout.  Of course, Mr. Raven wanted to be included (he's such a ham).  A few faux leaves were inserted into the top of the hay bundle with a large pumpkin to top it off.  
Are you decorating for Fall this year?  Hope you're having fun.  I will post some more Fall/Halloween pics this week, so come on back!
